Yonas Hailu Romberg

I sit here stunned, blessed, trying to find the words to convey the emotions and the meaning of this day. The sleepless nights, the anxiety, the ache I feel for him in the deep night...
all eased by the light that now shines at the end of this tunnel that has been so dark at times, so much harder than I imagined when we began this journey...




He is my son.

I am literally dancing a jig for you. !!

I remember back when I started following your blog- way back before you received a referral. I started following you and a couple others that were higher on our "list". Thinking it would be motivating to watch the other go before me. That I could learn - follow from wait to referral to travel and what I'd learn ahead of time before it was my turn. Now... Stunned- we could be traveling together. I'm so excited for you to FINALLLLYY pass court. My scale read 50 pounds lighter the day I passed mine. phew. Congratulations momma!
